Internal Entity Realignment and Streamlining

In the third quarter of 2022, the Company, in order to streamline business operations and provide long term synergies and other cost savings, approved an internal restructuring of certain direct and indirect subsidiaries. The internal restructuring involves a series of steps, the majority of which were completed by the end of the third quarter of 2022. As part of the internal restructuring plan, the tax status of certain subsidiaries changed from nontaxable to taxable. Accordingly, the recognition and derecognition of certain deferred taxes are reflected in the continuing operations at the date the change in tax status occurs. The Company recorded a one-time non-cash tax expense in the amount of approximately $8.7 million for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 in connection with the internal restructuring. The recording of this deferred tax expense aligned the Company’s deferred tax assets and liabilities to reflect the temporary differences between the financial statement and tax basis of the Company’s assets and liabilities at the time of the change in status.
